of these celebrities have been very quiet over the last two weeks or so since joe biden and the white house task force to sit down and hammer something out. they have been incredibly quiet on the score. when it comes to the second million they have no problem attacking the second amendment but when the first amendment, how they make their living, self-expression, creativity, they don't want to crack down to o. that it's better to keep their lips zipped for now. >> neil: they are open to saying take or guns but don't mess with our movies? >> that is right. don't mess with the money. all of hollywood as i learned working there is all about one thing first -- money. these movies sell. the violence and tv all sells. by the way, some of these people also appear in these violent video games and so forth. that we cannot touch. these industries -- but lockstep and hypocrisy, do something about the guns. they have no interest in it. if they did because the american people believe and understand, look, the violence we've got a problem with. security in schools. you have a problem with not just guns but problem

states is somehow the equivalent of hitler for asking joe biden to lead a task force on gun violence. this was a recently constructed home page on the drudge report, which was vocalized vaingloriously by this gentleman. >> hitler took the guns. stalin took the guns. mao took the guns. fidel castro took the guns. i'm here to tell you 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. >> unfortunately, messrs. lapierre and jones are being historically inaccurate. the suggestion that hitler promoted gun control is actually pretty wide of the mark. in fact, gun control was forcibly imposed upon germany following the treaty of versailles after the first world war. in 1919 the reichstag inacted regulations that asserted that all firearms as well as all kinds of fire ammunition are to be surrendered immediately. thereafter the german government began to liberalize these laws. in 1928 the law explicitly revervoked the 1919 law. and then in 1938 hitler and the nazis produced new law that is really loosened the regulation. the weapons law of march 18, 1938, completely deregulated the ac

[video clip] >> republicans and congress have two choices. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect ransomed in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people well-being is not a leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states is not a bargaining chip. they had better choose quickly, because time is running short. the last time republicans in congress even flirted with t

officials carrying guns. >>> on that topic, vice president joe biden met with house members and cabinet officials today. preparing to give the president his task force's recommendations on how to reduce gun violence. cnn white house correspondent dan lothian join us live now. dan. >> and the vice president ao met with the president today. they went other some proposals. the president saying that later in the week, he'll be outlining some specifics about watt administration needs to do. there will be no doubt, some resistance to what the president will be offering. but the president says that he is not worried about the politics. president obama says he's already reviewing the vice president's recommendations aimed at tackling gun violence. while some may require congressional approval. >> how we are gathering data, for example, on guns that fall into the hands of criminals. and how we track that more effectively. there may be some steps that we can take administratively as opposed to through legislation. >> reporter: strong resistance to executive orders from some gun right advocates wh
vice president, joe biden, for your dedication, joe, to this issue, for bringing so many different voices to the table, because while reducing gun violence is a complicated challenge, protecting our children from harm shouldn't be a divisive one. over the month since the tragedy in newtown, we've heard from so many, and obviously none have affected us more than the families of those gorgeous children and their teachers and guardians who were lost, and so we're grateful for all of you taking the time to be here and recognizing that we honor their memories in part by doing everything we can to prevent this from happening again. we also heard from unexpected people. in particular, i started getting a lot of letters from kids. four of them are here today. graham, julia, kenny and taja. they're pretty represented of some of the messages that i got. these are some pretty smart letters from some pretty smart young people. henna, a third grader. you can go ahead and wave, henna. that's you. henna wrote, i feel terrible for the parents who lost their children. i love my country, and i want
and that was incidentally first initiated and passed by joe biden. so she's the right person for to appoint whom we should do next. assault weapons falls within the bounds of the second amendment and so does everything else we are urging. this isn't a constitutional question, it is of political courage. the supreme court that defines what the constitution means and says has ruled that reasonable regulations are consistent with the second amendment so when the government raises the second amendment is nothing more than a red herring. it's time for the second amendment defenders in congress to call them to read that three measures i mentioned require background checks for all the gun sales making gun trafficking if federal crime and limiting military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. we require leadership from the president and members of congress but there are other steps president obama can take without congressional approval. if any time he chooses with just the stroke of a pen. vice president biden understands this and we hope his recommendations will include at least these four steps t
. now if you look, joe biden, thinking about 2016, governor o'malley of maryland, thinking about 2016, governor cuomo of new york thinking about 2016. governor hickenlooper thinking about 2016, you have democrats saying let's take this on, let's take the lead that would have been viewed as risky, perhaps suicidal a few years go. let's see how it plays out. >> will it remain? is it fleeting? we shall see, john king. thank you very much. >>> gun rights advocates tell me they see gun registration as a slippery slope toward banning, even confiscating guns. but there are areas where they agree with president obama. we're going to play something from this gun owner who spoke that may be universal background checks, maybe that's the most palletable idea we heard from the president. i want to take you to las vegas. because miguel marquez is there. he is at the biggest gun range in nevada. huge, miguel, huge announcement today from the president. what reaction are you getting from gun advocates there? >> reporter: it is a huge gun range, a huge reaction here across nevada. there is the giant s
a letter to the white house in protest. written to joe biden was posted on the agency's facebook page. >> you can ban every firearm out there, and it's not going to fix it. people that will commit these kin of heinous acts they are going to find a way to do it. >> it is worth noting that law enforcement officials are often on the vaqnguard of fighting gun violence and are widely supported of new gun measures. kion reports that mueller thinks treating mental illness is helpful. one other sheriff in kentucky says he will not comply. >>> and "the washington post," all presidential vehicles will hold a plate, taxation without representation. it refers to residents of d.c. they pay taxes but don't have a vote in congress. the white house says after living in washington for four year, the president recognizes the unfair answer that d.c. residents face every day. they will be on the vehicles for the duration of the second term. >> george w. bush took it off the car after president clinton used it. but obama didn't put it back, and there was a lot of criticism. so this is throwing those peopl
with boehner and obama and reid and joe biden sit down. >> no, they're going to agree how much are we going to cut and then the policy people are going to see where and how. that's how it goes in washington. >> before you get to washington, how do you dweel patient demand? you have all of these new machines and technology. you go in, you're a reasonably healthy person. you say, hey, i want to use the new machine that gives you an echo cardiogram. the doctor says, no, you're fine, and you get one. >> there are two, mike, i think that's a great question. two issues there. where do patients get these ideas and why do they do it? in part, doctors are fuelling that and drive down the new jersey turnpike, what do you see? hospital after hospital. we've got cyber knife. the robot. this. we're fuelling patients demand. the second thing -- >> what does the di vinci robot do? >> i'm sure you don't. it's the four arm robot that does prostate surgery. >> those guys actually don't like me because i keep saying this. it costs about 4 or 5,000 more per surgery. for a surgeon to get really good at it, requ
president joe biden, gabby giffords, and the new york city mayor michael bloomberg. joining us to explain the cover, rick stangel. thanks very much. tell us why you put these individuals, these three people on the cover. >> i think, wolf, they represent the sort of three legs of the stool of people who are trying to combat gun violence of the gr progressive side. mayor bloomberg has been out spoken for a very long time about reducing gun violence and he will be contributing money personally to a super pac that will help candidates who are in favor of gun laws and, of course, gabby giffords herself is a sim poll of the terrible tragedies that can happen from deranged people using guns. >> they are the three individuals on this fight right now. they didn't get together for a formal photo shoot for the cover, did they? >> no. we shot them individually and pieced them together. congresswoman giffords couldn't come to washington. otherwise i think we would have gotten them all together. >> how difficult will it be -- and your reporters have done a lot of reporting on this -- to get the preside

and it was initiated and passed by joe biden. he is the right person to come up with what we do next. regulating assault weapons falls in the bounds of the second ammendment. this is a question of political courage. the supreme court, which defines what the constitution means and says, states that reasonable considerations are part of the second amendment. when the gun lobby raises the second amendment, it is a red herring. it is time to call them on it. hthithis is background checks, making gun trafficking a crime, and limiting magazines, requires leadership from congress and the president. but there are other steps he may take without professional approval. vice president biden understands this and we hope his recommendations include these four steps. he can call for all agencies to submit data tehhey have to the background database. every bit of data -- is a murder in the making. gun sales can go ahead in cases were we all agree they shouldn't. second, the president can direct the justice department to prosecute convicted criminals who provide false personal information during background chec
